04 Aug NDOT Spaghetti Bowl Xpress Update – July/August 2020
Safety is our top priority. The project team participates in daily safety meetings to review upcoming operations and coordinate activities.
Ames Construction recently conducted an in-depth safety session, sharing its COVID-19 Exposure Prevention, Preparedness, and Response Plan. The contractor identified a team of employees to monitor ongoing guidance from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
The COVID-19 plan included detailed information on jobsite protective measures, jobsite cleaning and disinfecting, jobsite exposure situations, and OSHA recordkeeping. The project team complies with the Nevada Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s construction-safety guidance directive.
Upcoming Construction Activities
Beginning mid-August (approximately the week of August 16, 2020) until approximately December 2020 construction will begin on I-580 northbound from Mill Street to the spaghetti bowl. Crews will remove cracking interstate concrete and replace it with new roadway base and concrete.
Drivers will see lane shifts and closures. Operations will occur mostly at night, but traffic control will be in place 24 hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. We do not anticipate long term ramp closures or detours during this phase of construction. We will communicate nightly ramp closures in advance.
Below please find a traffic control graphic. Once drivers reach Mill Street, they must STAY RIGHT to access Mill Street, Glendale Avenue/Second Street and I-80 East and West. Through northbound traffic will STAY LEFT.
We anticipate construction of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony neighborhood wall adjacent to I-580 and utility relocations to begin in mid-August.
Drivers will see minor traffic control on Mill Street and Second Street/Glendale Avenue associated with the neighborhood wall construction. Major traffic control will be communicated in advance.
